A glossy coat and healthy skin are an integral part of a pet’s general well-being. Broadreach Nature + Advanced Skin, Coat and Joint Care for Dogs and Cats, is a Veterinary Strength Skin and Coat Care supplement created for pets of all ages which contains high quantities of EPA and DHA. Both are important Omega-3 fatty acids involved in the inflammatory response. Lecithin emulsifies the fatty acids aiding in absorption across the gut wall. The Rosemary and Vitamin E protect the essential fatty acids from oxidisation. Belinda, owner of Sasha and Keara – two German Shepherds shares her thoughts on YouTube as to how her two dogs are getting on. “The elder of the two is now much more mobile following support from Broadreach Nature + Joint Care Advanced with the younger not scratching or having irritated skin following support from our Broadreach Nature + Advanced Skin, Coat and Joint Care for Dogs and Cats”. Lydia Samson also has this to say, “My Border Collie Murphy has been using this product for quite a while now and the improvement is incredible! He’s not itching anymore, and his fur is beginning to thicken up again, just in time for winter! I’ve been incredibly impressed with the product, it’s easy to use and really does work a treat, would definitely recommend this to anyone!” As always, Broadreach Nature believe it’s important to keep an eye on your pet’s skin and coat and nothing can be more so during the summer. It is important to remember on walks through fields that grass can affect our pets. Following on from all the rain and then blazing sunshine the UK has received in recent weeks the grass in the fields and parks has really grown. Not only is this long grass a haven for ticks and fleas, which drop off and attach themselves to your pet’s coat, but it can also irritate your pets skin and paws. Grass darts from certain types of grasses Gand small pointed seed heads, attach to their fur can work their way into skin, paws, nose, ears and eyes. This can cause discomfort and irritation and may lead to further complications such as infections and may in worst case scenarios require surgery to remove them. So, what should you look out for? Licking of paws, discomfort while walking and obvious signs of pain. But does this mean you should stay clear of long grass? This shouldn’t be necessary as long as your pet is checked after a walk and is up to date with flea and tick treatment. Where should you check: MouthIn ears and eyesGroin and armpitsBetween the toes and pads on paws. In addition, a lot of dogs and cats like to chew grass, so grass blades can be nasty when stuck in the back of throats, nose and mouth. You can watch out for signs they may have one stuck in their throat with cats by reverse sneezing or dogs hacking.
